Irritable Bowel Syndrome

IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) is a common condition of the digestive system and can cause bouts of stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation.

The NHS states that there is no cure for IBS, but the symptoms can be relieved by changing your diet and lifestyle. Sometimes medication can help, too. However we know that there are often reasons why you would develop such a condition and we can alleviate the problem with hypnotherapy.

While IBS isn't a dangerous condition, it can intrude on your routine and everyday life. While the condition poses no serious threat to your health. For example, it won't increase your chances of developing cancer or other bowel conditions - but this is often of little comfort to people who suffer wiith the symptoms.

The precise cause of IBS is unclear, but it may be triggered by stress, problems with your immune system or a problem with how the muscles of your gut squeeze food through your bowel.

The symptoms of IBS usually come on for the first time between the ages of 20 and 30. They're not usually continuous, but tend to come and go in bouts, often during times of stress or after eating certain foods.

The symptoms can vary from one person to another and be worse in some people than others.

But most people experience either diarrhoea or constipation or bouts of both, and sometimes notice mucus in their stools. It's also common to find that painful cramps ease after you've been to the toilet to open your bowels.

How we can help

If IBS is intruding on your life and preventing you from doing the things you would like then a course of hypnotherapy can benefit you greatly. Depending on your situation we will offer you a course of suggestion therapy or hypnoanalysis. If we discover that there are bottled up emotions involved in your panic attacks, then the root issues can be tackled with hypnoanalysis. Some people can benefit directly with suggestion therapy (clinical hypnosis), but if we find the problems are more deep rooted from your past, then these are tackled with the hypnoanalysis.
